In a notable recognition of her relentless advocacy, Rachel Goldberg, the mother of 23-year-old hostage Hersh Goldberg-Polin, has been listed by Time magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2024. Time magazine lauds Goldberg for her unwavering commitment to raising awareness about the plight of hostages and their families, a role that has thrust her into the global spotlight.

Goldberg’s inclusion stems from her extensive efforts in engaging with numerous world leaders, including notable figures like US President Joe Biden and Pope Francis. Through these interactions, Goldberg has emerged as a prominent voice representing the concerns and demands of hostages and their families on the international stage.

Joining Goldberg on Time’s prestigious roster is Qatar’s Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani.

  1. Rachel is a lioness! A proud, passionate and eloquent mother. But Qatar’s PM and Foreign Minister? For Heaven’s sake. These guys protect and embolden Hamas barbarians while pretending to be mediators. The hostages would be alive or free today if Hamas leaders weren’t comfortably ensconced in 5 Star hotels in Doha! Methinks Time magazine was trying to be “fair ” and even-handed and they threw a bone to the Israelis by voting for Rachel. Feh!
